Iraq -- five years later -- and Obama's minister

Isn't there something a bit striking in how Obama's minister problem has come to a head at the same time as the fifth anniversary of the Iraq?

I mean, yes, some of Jeremiah Wright's statements are not the kind of thing to which you want to hitch your cart when you are running for president of the United States. And for those inclined to view this stuff in the dimmest possible light, it won't make a whit of difference that making fiery pronouncements fits squarely in the tradition of a particular style of preaching in the black church.

But say you want to have an elective war, with a tab in the trillions, tens of thousands dead, US troops being sent into battle without proper equipment, veterans getting shabby treatment, America's global standing seriously diminished, terrorists strengthened, and no end in sight?

No problem!
